The cast and crew of "Mission Impossible 7" are in the middle of filming in the UK, at the Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, Herts. But the production has been slowed down several times because the cast is reportedly shirking some COVID guidelines, particularly when it comes to social distancing. The film's star, actor Tom Cruise, decided to say something about it. Actually, he screamed about it. The Sun, a tabloid outlet in the UK, released audio of the outburst.

*Warning: graphic language.*

“If I see you do it again, you’re f***ing gone," Cruise is heard yelling at his colleagues. "And if anyone in this crew does it, that’s it — and you too and you too. And you, don’t you ever f***ing do it again.”

He continued:

“They’re back there in Hollywood making movies right now because of us. “We are creating thousands of jobs, you motherf***ers...That’s it. No apologies. You can tell it to the people that are losing their f***ing homes because our industry is shut down...We are not shutting this f***ing movie down. Is it understood? If I see it again, you’re f***ing gone.”

His rant is getting mixed reactions. While some people say he has every right to be peeved at the cast and crew for putting their work at risk, others like "The View's" Sara Haines say there's never any cause for an adult to lose their temper and treat people like that.

Some social media users were in agreement that his behavior was uncalled for, no matter the context.

And here's why his defenders are arguing that his rant was justified.

"Mission: Impossible 7" is expected to be released next November.
